Ancestral Fan Chart compiled by Jean (Potter) Stewart and daughter Margaret Stewart Straus, Madison, Wisconsin, in 2003.

The goal of this project is to convert the marginal notes from the Walker - Stewart Fan Chart from hand-lettered material into text. My copy of the Fan Chart is inside the blue three-ring binder, Stewart-Walker Genealogy. Note: J. Stewart has two copies of this binder

This is a one-person project at this time (August 2019). Longer term, it might be worth finding out which, if any of the names mentioned are already in WT; linking them would add to the value. (Thinking out loud, I wonder if it would make more sense to re-order the notes by ordinal number of generation... For now, I want to enter them in all in the printed sequence; I will consider re-ordering them later. Also, now that the basic entry is complete, I wonder WHY I started at the bottom?) (Note: IMHO, seeing the full chart is relatively important to getting the full grasp of the genealogical connections.) I have also spelled out, or otherwise expanded, some abbreviations, where appropriate)
